Form & Verdict

Looked in excellent nick when returning from 166-day break with 12l win in today's headgear combination at Southwell (2m, good) this month; 8lb higher now and might not be quite as effective on this very different track but still needs to be taken very seriously.

Career-best efforts in victory in the hood and tongue-tie combination at Southwell and Perth (off only 2lb lower) the last twice (2m, good), with the next-time wins of the third and fourth in the latest race giving substance to the form; won a C&D hurdle on sole previous course visit.

Added to his two hurdle wins when landing a C&D handicap (good) in November but he was held in third of four at Leicester in his final run last year; that took his chase record to 1-8 and he has some work to do back from 166 days off; equipment returns, including a first-time hood.

Form & Verdict

Quirky 9yo who has some very useful form on his CV but tends to race far too freely and has become very tricky to win with; very well handicapped now but was behind Lermoos Legend when fifth of six at Aintree recently and remains a risky option.

Has put together a series of solid runs this spring/summer (once under Brian Hughes), the latest when not beaten far at Stratford last month; that took his losing run to 17, however, and others more compelling.

Five-time chase winner; no longer the force of old but comes here after finishing second on good ground at Cartmel (2m1f) and Aintree (2m) this spring, and ought to play another significant role.

Six-time chase winner on good/good to soft ground, most recently off today's mark at Worcester (2m7f) last summer; pulled up on heavy ground last month, after a layoff, but ought to fare better now back on a quicker surface and with that run under his belt.

Scored at Worcester (2m7f) in July but he's been off the track since coming in a solid third in 2m5f Fontwell handicap chase in October; he needs to hit the ground running on his return.

Form & Verdict

Won twice last season (2m3f/2m) but was fortunate on latter occasion in March and his last two runs were disappointing; back down to a good mark now and seems versatile regarding ground but needs a boost from the refitted cheekpieces.

Won three times last year and back on the scoresheet over C&D (soft) last Saturday, following wind surgery; had just a short head to spare in that three-runner race and this is much more competitive, but it was certainly a positive performance and he's gone back up just 1lb; not ruled out.

Did very well on good/good to firm ground in early part of last season, winning two hurdles and two chases; not yet fully exposed but we haven't seen him since a disappointing run (albeit on good to soft) in October.

C&D scorer off 2lb lower in June 2022 (good); nearly as long as he last raced over hurdles, and possible this rates a confidence fillip after his jumping let him down over fences back here last time.

Has disappointed on both appearances this year but he won two 2m1f chases last summer and is not yet fully exposed over fences; had wind operation since last seen and there's nothing wrong with his mark.
